Andy Murray reveals how he started to root for Arsenal FC

Like many other Britons, Andy Murray is also a football fan, and during his meeting with former Arsenal footballer, Robert Pires, Murray had some interesting revelation to bring on the table. Murray who was born in Dunblane, Scotland, said he originally used to root for Scottish team Hibernian FC, but some other factors affected his decision to start following Arsenal FC.

'I used to support Hibs (Hibernian) when I was a kid', confessed Murray. 'Growing up my grandfather played for them, and then when i started traveling a lot, couldn't watch Scottish football on TV anymore, and then I started following Arsenal because of the way your (Pires') team played.' 29-year-old Murray was asked from Pires to pick up his all-time Arsenal five-a-side team, and Murray who immediately noted no goalkeeper, added, ''I'm taking, Tony Adams, (Thiery) Henry, (Dennis) Bergkamp, (Robert) Pires and (Patrick) Vieira.' However, it's nice to see Murray getting caught up with Pires who spent six years (2000-2006) with his beloved club Arsenal.
